About Us

Gujarat Jesuit Ecological Mission (GJEM) is working towards transforming attitudes and practices to make communities adapt to environmental challenges. It began as a pilot project in 2014, with an array of interventions in eco-spirituality, eco-education, organic farming, traditional medicine, promotion of renewable energy and communication. Spread across the state of Gujarat, GJEM garnered bigger responsibilities in 2017 and found inclusive ways to conserve environment and make life richer.
